We had the good fortune of connecting with Jesus Murillo Lum and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jesus, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
The habits that I feel have generated success for me would have to be waking up early, exercising regularly, investing time into furthering my education to make sure I’m the best possible trainer and prioritizing my business. Most importantly I’ve been consistent throughout my success! I wake up at 4am Monday through Saturday showing up to the gym ready to make sure my clients get the best training sessions possible. I make sure my clients are getting the attention and assistance they need outside of the gym whether it be updating there calendars with new workouts or adjusting there nutrition goals for the week. I always make sure my clients come first!
Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
My passion and my drive set me apart from other trainers in this industry. My attention to detail is something I feel sets me apart as well, a lot trainers tend to overlook that and is vital to not just being a good personal trainer but great personal trainer. I tailor my programs to each client individually based on there experience level, past injuries and goals. No two clients are the same therefore I make sure each client is getting the undivided attention they deserve. I started at corporate gym three years ago there I learned a lot about the business side of being a personal trainer, I worked for a private gym for two years after that. I was the head coach and the master trainer at this gym I was able to learn a lot about connecting with people and building my clientele there. I took what I learned from both these environments and applied to my own business. Some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way where that you have to be able to take criticism from others, you have to continue to further your education. be open to others ideas and can’t be afraid to ask for help. I want people to understand that I’ve worked extremely hard to get to where I am today, its been three years since I became a personal trainer I’m just starting to mold my brand. I’ve worked for other people now it’s time for me to build my own vision and my own legacy.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First I would I take them to the Manitou Incline in Colorado Springs for a challenging but amazing hike to show them the beautiful outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. Then I would take them back to the city for a delicious and authentic Mexican meal from my favorite restaurant La Abeja in Capitol Hill! After that we would go get desert at Little Man Ice Cream in the Highlands! To finish it all up we would end our night at My Neighbor Felix for drinks and some delicious food. Incase you couldn’t tell I’m a major foodie!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My parents along with my girlfriend, they’ve both been very supportive throughout my journey. They gave me that extra nudge to pursue my passion and make it my career three years ago. I wouldn’t be where I am today without there constant support. Through the highs and the lows they’ve always supported my vision!
